    The event is on again, the second running,
    After losing " Chelsea Walsh " the road at the Chelsea Sugar Refinery, in 2018, the Waitemata Branch of the Vintage Car Club were invited by MG Car Club to run at Maioro Road, Otaua, Franklin County South Auckland - the event that was started by Austin Healey Car Club back in 1983 and handed to MGCC in 1991,

    The event is at Pakiri off Pakiri Road, near Mangawhai, Lower Northland

    Allan, It is sealed, a private road that does show on Google Maps Manunui Road is off Pakiri Road, Google 1085 Pakiri Road.
    There is on facebook a post by Nigel Hunter Russell, a Formula Junior and VCC guy has posted a drive up the road.

    Nigel's run took 1 minute 41 the fastest last year was 59 seconds ;

    See if this works " https://www.facebook.com/10000066165...93846737314008 "

    The Manunui Hill Climb was a great success, apparently and quite a few photos have appeared on several Facebook pages, by Nigel Hunter Russell [ who posted the above images of the upcoming event ].

    In the meantime, back to the Pahoia event - hopefully no repeats.

    Another general view;

    This TR was at the local Tyre Guys shop recently - Steve Abbott, the son of Russ Abbott who was into rallying and Hillclimbs and other Motorsport in the 1970's / 80's. Steve had the Chev C10 Pickup posted earlier.

    More Fords - they were a big group, but think the Morris Minor Club group was even bigger " the MM Club arrived in convoy, as did the local branch of the Ulysses Motorcycle Club, having made the event part of their Sunday runs.

    The " Toyota " motor was in this MM - have seen a similar Toyota Twincam in an Austin Healey Sprite - the one Allan Horner competes in the " Classic Trial " series of circuit events at Hampton Downs and Pukekohe.
    The van runs EFI, Allan runs carburetors [ less bulky under the bonnet of the Sprite ]

    Vintage photos of cars that are now Vintage

    Photos of mine from the archives - the 3 x 3 prints were made from film in a Kodak Brownie Starlet Camera that I got as a young fellow in 1962.
    Cars include ones owned by family and friends

    Many of the later posted photos are from Seabrook Avenue in New Lynn, where I lived from 1955 to 1970.
    Others from Muriwai and other places.
    Some on the old Black on Yellow plates

    My Mates Morrie and Muriwai.

    An FL1 Austin Hire Car version of the London Taxi the FX3.
    Firstly at Waiheke - before I bought it for $170, It was owned by a Mates Father at the time.

    Had to ship it back to Auckland via Subritzky's barge. It failed to start when trying to leave the boat at Half Moon Bay and was unceremoniously hauled off by a Tractor - the Subritzky Boys were not amused at the extra work involved.
    Here in Mount Albert with my daily driver a 1996 Austin Mini 850 in 1973 - my second Mini.

    The FL1 was later sold, for around $250, to an American, living in the Waitakere's as a project along with a bunch of spare body panels from a wrecked FX3

    Never owned a Sunbeam but drove several, a mates 1950's Talbot and an Alpine like this.
    Borrowed another mates Alpine when my TR4A met with an accident in 1980 as was carless for while.
